About this book

Commemoration of war is done through sport on Anzac Day to remember Australia's war dead. War, Sport and the Anzac Tradition traces the creation of this sporting tradition at Gallipoli in 1915, and how it has evolved from late Victorian and Edwardian ideas of masculinity extolling prowess on the sports field as fostering prowess on the battlefield.

About the authors

Kevin Blackburn is Associate Professor in History at the National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He is the author of The Sportsmen of Changi (2012), which deals with the relationship between sport and captivity under the Japanese during World War II.

Reviews

“War, Sport and the Anzac Tradition is an at times exemplary work of synthesis and analysis that deserves to be read by the community of scholars in the discipline of Australian sport history and by general readers beyond.” (Ian Syson, Australian Historical Studies, Vol. 49 (4), 2018)
